Abstract:Introduction - The nature of Ugandan Islam - The coming of Islam to Uganda - Evolution of Muslim administrative institutions - The creation of the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council, 1971-1972 - The functioning of the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council, 1972-1979 - April 1979 to September 1981, two difficult years - Conclusions: During its ten years of operation, the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council has encountered numerous problems largely arising out of discords from within that have been exploited by social forces from outside the Muslim community. Such difficulties notwithstanding, the body has gone a long way to being accepted as the sole administrative structure of Muslim affairs in the country. In areas where Muslims are in a minority or do not control the social and political system, the importance of such a body is paramount. Notes.
